6 The implementation phase

6.1 Implementing

This is the phase when you complete your assignment. In some courses and for some assignments, the exploring and implementing phases may merge or overlap; in other courses, considerable exploration is needed before the actual assignment can be done. If there are several parts to your assignment, part of your planning might be to move back and forth between exploring and implementing - studying for and then completing part of the question, then returning for more study before tackling the rest of the assignment. Again, find a pattern that best suits you and the task. The two activities in the implementing phase are:

  • monitoring your performance
  • making a self-assessment.
